I have an older Toshiba laptop that I changed the harddrive and I need a restore disc for. I contacted Toshiba and they said they no longer kept restore disc for my model. They suggested I buy windows 7 for $100+. Any other options would be appreciated.

I have a compact armada when booting up do i hit f10 to system restore it a m700


Hi - To do a system restore you need the QuickRestore disc package that was provided with the machine. The restore would only be useful if you still had the factory installed operating system on your laptop.

I did a look around the HP/Compaq support site and didn't see any place to order the discs but I only spent a few minutes there so you might want to contact them. The support page for your PC is located HERE. It's an older machine and there's a strong possibility you can no longer get the discs.

Your best option would be to upgrade your machine to Windows XP (or reinstall it if that's what you had). I only suggest that version of Windows if you have 512 MB of RAM (the system probably came with 256 MB of RAM.

Good Luck and Thanks for visiting Fix Ya.

How do i reset my toshiba laptop without a recovery disk? i tried to hold the "0" and power key but when it came back on the recovery system program did not come up


Power it down. When you restart the laptop start tapping f12 until a screen pops up saying "DO YOU WANT TO DO A SYSTEM RESTORE" Once this system restore window opens, stop tapping and just follow the instructions. Some of the older computers may ask you for the restore discs so have those ready. Most newer computers do not need restore discs.

I have no Acer Recovery disks My lap top is giving me 5 options Systems Repair - tried this doesnt work Systems Restore - tried this doesnt work Windows Diagnostic Tool - tried that took bout ten mins and...


Could you look at solutions other than running a system restore? What is the initial issue that is requiring you to run the restore?
If you're at the point of needing to run a restore, you do need to get your hands on the discs, I would recommend borrowing the discs from someone else with an Acer, or purchasing them from the manufacturer. Trying to borrow discs from someone might be an issue as Acer no longer provides physical recovery discs, the process is run directly from the laptop and the files are on a partitioned section of the harddrive.

I need to get back in my OEM vista home premium


If you contact Toshiba, they can send you the original restore disks. If you are really nice to them, they might send them out for free.. I believe normally they do charge but they sent them to me for free a couple of years ago with my Toshiba laptop :)

I need the hardrive drivers mk1637gsx 160 HD SATA


Theres no such thing as Hard Drive Drivers

Restore disks are created to only work with the default hard drive that came with the laptop. Even if you bought an exact replacement it still wouldnt work as the restore discs looks for the unique serial number of the hard drive and therefore prevents people from using the recovery discs on other toshiba systems or non toshiba systems.

Id suggest borrowing another windows installation disc and using the key on the certificate of authencity on the bottom f the laptop to activate.You might have to ring microsoft to activate it but just explain whats happened and it should all go ok.

Won't boot


I had this too. It kept happening after I would install updates. I think the problem turned out to being that my harddrive (only 4GB) had run out of space.

The way I ended up fixing it was to turn the power off by holding down the button, turn it back on and hold the F9 key. This allowed me to "restore factory defaults" and it booted up again. I lost all the changes I had made, so if you had settings saved, this may not be your best option.

If it is a harddrive space issues, I would recommend getting to the console (CNTRL+ALT+T) and then typing "sudo synaptic" to get to the package manager. You can then remove packages that you no longer need or want to use (like the kids games, possibly Skype). This stuff is a little advanced, so if you're not sure of what you're doing, you may end up changing something you didn't mean to and needing to start back over again by restoring defaults.
